the republican, ron paul. i will vote for mitt romney because he talks like he has a head on strong. he will get the industrial back to work. how much is obama spending every year on an green global environment? how much money has he spent on the environment? everybody keeps calling me wanting me to go to college and stuff. how can i go to work -- there is no industrial work? >> thank you for the call. you mentioned ron paul -- of course it was congressman paul ryan debating tonight. >> i want to state that you said earlier that somebody on the page stated joe biden was a fool. he was an overly aggressive. i feel like obama should have been more aggressive with romney in the first debate. look, joe biden put it this administrative record on the record. paul ryan that could not back up what he was saying. >> ok. thank you for the call. john has this point. . >> and other men are two with your calls and comments and another chance to see the debate in its entirety. less is on the phone from kentucky. >> is essentially the format really did not serve either by then -- joe biden or paul ryan. i thou
at 11:20 today. we want to know what you think these candidates should talk about, or what mitt romney should specifically address in his speech and what foreign- policy issues you think he needs to talk about more on the campaign trail. already getting reaction from facebook this morning. host: just below that, eleanor rights -- host: we want to get to your calls this morning, start calling in now. we have -- we will read to you a few more articles from this speech. "mitt romney strives to stand apart in global policy." host: again, that speech is happening at about 11:20 this morning. we will take our first call on this from clinton, illinois. matt is waiting on the independent line. good morning. caller: mitt romney needs to go after the whole libya at incident. he may have made a few missteps regarding coming out with information, but he needs to layoff of that, because it is one thing that he can actually use. i do not know if it will help his foreign policy, because obama can just come back and say -- that is what i did -- but that is something he will really have to focus on if
. >> i want to talk about, in the middle of the crisis, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is
health care decisions. governor romney talks about freedom. but freedom is the ability to determine the care you need when you need it. freedom is the ability to change jobs or start your own business without the fear of losing your health insurance. freedom is the knowledge that you'll no longer be charged more than men for the same health care. or denied affordable coverage just because you've beat cancer. and at a time when women make up nearly half the work force, and an increasing share of family bread winners, these are not just health issues or women's issues. these are economic issues that are vital and affect every family in america. they matter. when -- when a woman is the main bread winner for her family but takes home less pay for the same work, as a man does because she's a woman, that is not right. when my opponent's campaign was asked if he'd support legislation given -- giving women the tools to fight for an equal day's pay for an equal day's work, he said we'll get back to you on that and since then refused to explain his position. you've already got my answer. upho
to a clip from tonight's debate. >> gov. romney talk about the weakness and apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate right in the middle of a crisis? >> on the same day the obama administration had the same position. they descend out there on statement to put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our valleys. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and started when the mullahs in iran were attacking their own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights. we should not imposing these devastating defense cuts. what that does well way equivocate on our values, we sure we are cutting our own defense, it projects weakness. will we look we, our adversaries are more willing to test us. >> with all due respect, that is a bunch of malarkey. not a single thing said is accurate. i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security, the congressmen here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security

been capital -- bain capital and the beginning. it talked about how mitt romney had made his money. it was not that anybody has anything against mitt romney for being rich. we'll make our choices and how we make money. this is one of the ads, perhaps the most powerful and we have done. other consultants have talked about this, saying it is very powerful. check this out and then we will talk about it. >> not knowing what it was for. just days later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walk on to that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you are fired. i looked both ways could i looked at the crowd and we all just lost their jobs. we don't have an income. nit romney made over $100 million by shutting down power plant and devastated our lives. -- shutting down power plant in devastated our lives. -- shutting down our plant and its devastated our lives. out of the blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage -- >> ab powerful ad called "stage ," powerful because it sets the stage for what mitt romney's parties were. fro
the tab. for you. recipe for job growth. we have tried both approaches. romney is talking about is the in 2001 and 2003. we ended up with the slowest job growth and 50 years. it culminated in the worst depression. i am talking about. businesses did well. in some ways we have some data on which approach is more likely for americans. i believe that the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks and those live in that we can afford to do blowing up the deficit. >> he gets the first word of that segment. let me make this comment. let me repeat what i said. my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. that is not my plan. let's look at history. my plan is not like anything that has been tried before. my plan is to bring down rates and credit so the revenue stays in but we bring down rates to get more people working. my priority is putting peoplethey are suffering. look at the evidence of the last four years. it is extraordinary. we have 23 million people out ofwhen the president took office, 47 million were on food stamps. economi

the romney video. ". later we will talk to emily ethridge. she has the story about tackling medicare. first, let's check back in julie sobel of national journal and update on the senate race in arizona. >> this is a race most people have not been paying attention to until recently. it was assumed a republican will hold the seat. congressman jeff flake is a republican in the race. recently polls showing a tied race. people are tuning in realizing that arizona could be a close senate race. carmona is a great recruit for democrat. he served under george w. bush. it's pretty hard for republicans to paint him with the partisan brush that they want to. basically, the argument is that he was recruited by obama and that he'll vote with the democrats which in arizona, it's a state where the fundamentals are republicans and that's kind of going to be the argument against carmona probably throughout this race. host: what should viewers be watching for tonight? >> you definitely going to see that obama called carmona personally to recruit him to run and that he is obama's man in arizona from flake. y
outbreaks on. host: a poll shows a one point advantage for mitt romney. the washington post talks but adds fanning in critical states with the front page story, 100 million spent so far by the two candidates in florida, about the same spent in virginia and ohio. mitt romney makes two stops in ohio. obama prepares for the next debate on tuesday. town hall style format. you can see previous town hall formats tonight on c-span. that will start at 7:00 p.m., go to c-span.org for details. and for the first 45 minutes, we wanted to get your thoughts and the role of the moderator during the debate. we have pondered two already. we want to get your thoughts on style.and jim's anything that involves the moderator during the presidential debates. we want to get your thoughts. give us a call -- we choose this in part because of the reactions in the debate moderator's, especially from groups and watch these kinds of things. this is media matters, this out for the mark but debate. this is what the poston. write when media uses interruptions -- it goes on despite right-wing media are attacking the moder
and this is a politically charged issue. how many weeks ago was it that mitt romney was in so much trouble for not talking about veterans and not mentioning the afghanistan war at the republican convention in tampa? it is also interesting that the sense of hope you mentioned -- you are open to a buy at least a part-time job or a full-time job. -- find at least a part-time job or a full-time job. these are the months where people are wanting to hire part- time employees to make up for the extra work there will be for the holiday season. host: 44,000 jobs bump in the health-care industry according to the bureau of labor statistics. as our guest minted at our caller mentioned, a drop in manufacturing. there is a question about explaining the criteria that the department of labor uses statistics -- department of labor uses as statistics. guest: people can make a lot of the unemployment rate in one way. on the other side, there will be people who can stand it the other way. people who have been employed for a certain amount of time have to cross the threshold in terms of how long you have been employed. it is
want to talk a little bit about this speech today. thank you for joining us. what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? what sort of expectations are built up? guest: this will be romney's foreign-policy speech. it is clearly pretty late in the game for him to be delivering a speech like this. early voting has started in the number of states. he wants to continue some of the momentum he built up last week's debate. it's a chance for him to make a clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it's another chance for his campaign to show that there is more of a choice between him and obama and less of a referendum. when romney pick his running mate this summer, there was a sense that this would be a chance for him to outline things for his own and have a policy position that would set him apart from the president. but we've seen over the past couple of weeks at the campaign dynamic has not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to get the president. >> what you have seen from the speech so far, is mitt romney going to
those ways. is really different from what the romney campaign -- the romney campaign has not really talked about this at all. is really private sector- private-sector. >> when you hear public-private partnership, what is your first thought? >> again, i think it goes into defining the role of government. their government -- the government has had a long and successful history with research and development funding. particularly basic research were there is not an economic or business incentive engaged in research. the government can go a long way through collaboration with universities. i think the trouble is where you define that and what is the government's's role in the partnership? -- what is the government's role in the partnership? very often companies come in and look at money they can contribute to get to their bottom-line. i think the other problem is, when the government views itself as a partner and as driving economic decisions for favorite political entities. i am not going to go into a long rehash of some of those experiences are around investment in renewable energy or
want to talk about, in the middle of the crisis, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking a
'm on food stamps and i'm telling governor romney, i don't feel like i'm entitled but i need it. in talking about taxes too as the caller mentioned, we heard mitt romney say with wolf blitzer is that the wealthy are doing fine and i don't care about the wealthy. the question is why do you want to lower their tax rate 20%? he's saying that's not his plan? host going back and forth and obama campaign is trying to making a campaign issue out of it. if the wealthy is doing fine do who bowles-simpson says. he keeps talking of bowles- simpson every chance he has, which had does not slash government spending immediately. and it raise taxes on the wealthy a little bit to close that gap. the ryan budget would have, which he endorsed, mitt romney endorsed and put ryan on the ticket, would have tremendously slashing effect in government spending and social programs. it cuts taxes further. beyond the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. i think there's still a lot of back and forth flip-flopping whatever you want to call it strategic ambiguity what mitt romney is saying. host: let's go to stamford, connectic
with the lady talking about the foreign policy issue. i think mitt romney is an opportunist. he went overseas and is respected our allies. -- disrepected all of our allies. he is an opportunist. he kisses up to benjamin netanyahu on foreign-policy. i think obama is steadfast. he talked to benjamin netanyahu on the phone for hours. it's not like he has been dodging him. he does not is up to foreign -- does not kiss up to foreign leaders. the talks to them like a leader. in the debate, obama held his head up high and did not have his head down like everybody said he did. as far as the media, i don't think the real voters actually thought that. i think a lot of people just followed what the media was saying as far as what he was talking about -- i mean what the media was talking about when they said obama did not hold his head up high. i think he was very presidential and very calm. i think. mitt romney think. -- i think mitt romney was desperate. host: we will hear the candidates debate on policy in the coming weeks. can you reflect on the earlier part of what he was saying? guest: i think romn
in reality. how can a fast-talking salesman like mr. romney change people's minds and changed their vote? should they not be looking deeper and researched the facts? just talkingy that about energy policy can in any way to create 3 million jobs. you have to look beyond what they are saying and look for the truth, because it's nothing but a snake oil salesman talking. host: do you want to hear them go back and forth tonight interrupting each other or do you want a moderator to step in more and try to control the environment? caller: i would definitely like to see the moderator not let them ramble on. host: so you want time constraints? caller: yes, definitely. i was so disappointed that people are not looking beyond words, because anyone can say anything. host: this was a style section of the washington post this morning about the role of the moderator -- that was about the moderator. the washington times this morning as a piece thishow president obama attended mark their ballotss -- attended martha raddatz's mary stuart ex- husband and some are concerned that she will be biased tonight.
me ask that again. the governor romney talked about reducing tax rates and says he would not balloon the deficit. let me ask your opinion about eliminating the deductions i listed. do we have to eliminate deductions for mortgage interest, state and local taxes, or charitable contributions? >> let me talk to you about one deduction or loophole that i have put legislation in. that is the elimination of loopholes for energy companies and oil companies. my opponent and i both agree that we should eliminate loopholes for energy companies. but she wants to give the revenue to the federal government and i want to give it to the individual at the gas pumps. when you pay for that gasoline, reducing the cost of gasoline. my parents filled up their gas tank, came to my house, and half a day later, that gas pump with 10 cents more a gallon. we can talk about loopholes and one of them is that for the oil companies. but i would give it back to the individual as a reduction of costs. quite where to begin, but let me start with the last thing you said. he introduced the legislation and spent a lot o
government that follows on. all of the loose talk of my friend, governor romney and the congressman, about how we could do so much more. what more would they do other than put american boots on the ground? the last thing america needs is to get into in the ground war in the middle east requiring a hundred thousand american forces. they are the facts. every time the american -- every time the governor is asked about this, he goes up with a whole lot of the verbiage. when he gets pressed, he says he would not do anything different that we are doing now. are they proposing putting american troops until the ground? they should speak up and say so. that is not what they are saying. we are doing it exactly like we need to do to identify those forces who in fact will provide for stable government and not cause a regional suni shiite war when assad falls. >> nobody is proposing sending american troops to syria. we would not refer to asad as a reformer when he is killing his of civilians. we would not be outsourcing our foreign policy to the united nations giving vladimir putin veto power over our
there was a possibility romney might be elected. let's talk about that a second. theoretically, if -- >> it's a good thing i'm here. >> and i think everybody agrees with that. >> in terms of american influence, do you think president romney would handle things, do things, and have an impact on america that is really different from what president obama would do? >> my basic theme is there is a tremendous degree of continuity at all times between pts. that we already saw, and jessica have had a running discussion about this. i was going to say argument but -- >> discussion. >> discussion which has been running since january of 2009. the times writes about this, the continuity between reagan and bush. so any president only changes things 10 degrees one way, 10 degrees the other. there will be some differences. no question romney takes a different view on russia. you would probably see a different policy on russia. one thing we haven't spoken about is iran. and maybe we were going to get to it eventually. since i consider it to be an not unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house, the un
with my colleagues. obama is a favorite. i would make it 55-45. it is a difficult path to romney running the presidency. >> let's talk about the debate. based on your contacts, which would run for the president? was he not prepared? how did romney become a super debater? what happened at the white house and what happened with romney? >> i'd like to leno's line that only the nfl replacement rest obama won the debate. the president looked like a team that was overconfident, that did not fear or respect his opponent and did not take it seriously. the romney i saw was someone i had not seen in a long time. it was the romney i saw when he was running for the u.s. senate in massachusetts in 1994, a pragmatic problem solver. i would have put him 35-45 period -- 35-40. he was for the first time being who he was as opposed to pretending some -- to be someone he was not. >> i keep thinking as a new yorker -- of the new yorker cover cartoon. that is what a lot of people came in be leaving. it is hard to understand what happened with the president. he has a cold, distant demeanor. that explains some
. we are talking about the tax plans of president obama and candidate romney. extending the bush tax cuts, what is the cost for the richest 1% and the rest of the 99%? guest: it will cost about $5.50 trillion over 10 years. the president obama planned to not extend the bush tax cut on income over $250,000 only saves about $1 trillion. host: you are nodding your head. guest: a lot of people do not recognize what is in play. the bush tax cuts went to the top 2%, 3%. they received trillionths, depending on how you count the numbers. both candidates are proposing to extend both of those tax cuts. it will be difficult to do that unless semiserious plan to control entitlement spending. the president certainly does not have that. i think it is an open question how serious governor romney is about that. there was talk of an increase in proposed medicare spending over the next decade, which is not exactly a step towards fiscal responsibility. host of these comments -- -- host: these comments from twitter -- host: rosalie, conn., independent caller line. hello. caller: good morning. my questio
we asked for. so much for the embassy security. number two, governor romney, before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements and was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about weakness, i don't understand what my. friend is my. >> what were you first told about the attack? why were people talking about protests when people in the consulate's first saw armed men attacking at the fence, there were no protestors? guest: i went on what we were told by the intelligence community. they told us that. as they learned more facts about exactly what happened, they changed their assessment. that's why there's also an investigation headed by a leading diplomat from the reagan years who is doing an investigation into whether there were any lapses cannot what they worked, so they will never happen again. >> but they wanted more security. >> we were not told that they wanted more security. at the time, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. that was the assessment. as the intelligence community changed the
of president obama and republican presidential candidate mitt romney. this is about 45 minutes. rebecca wilkens joins us from citizens for tax justice and the other guest is the resident scholar at the american enterprise institute. we're here to talk about tax plans. rebecca wilkens -- where are they different on taxes? >> both candidates propose extending the bush tax cuts. governor romney wants to extend all the tax cuts. president obama just wants to extend them for those making less than $250,000. that is a fairly significant difference. that would have a that a $1 trillion cost. romney wants to reduce individual rates by 20% across the board and also reduce the corporate rate down to 25%. president obama proposed reducing them to 20%. guest: i think that is a fair description. host: we heard that the debate in denver about where romney stands on his tax plan. here is a headline coming to us -- there is little tax clarity from the obama or romney. $5 trillion -- whether or not tax cuts will equal $5 trillion. there is difference over this number. guest: the $5 trillion is the gross cost of
are in poverty, we need to continue to take care of them. as i drew the difference between governor romney and myself, when he talked about those in poverty, i said they haven't chosen to be there. i would not cut our food stamp programs now because we need to make sure those folks can continue to be taken care of. but let's get them a job and get them back to work so families can progress. >> again, this is just about numbers. if you except this tax cut number, the only way to account for it is to have massive cut to these programs that do put people to work and grow jobs and take care people when they are out of work. you have to look at the work i have done. i've committed my life to standing up to the most vulnerable among us. some of the work i do on these issues may be don't get the big headlines. i wrote a piece of legislation, the support of housing investment act, named after a great advocate for anti-homeless this in connecticut that would triple the amount of housing units built for the most vulnerable among us. people have very grave mental illnesses and physical handicaps that
the difference between governor romney and myself, when he talked about those in poverty, i said they haven't chosen to be there. i would not cut our food stamp programs now because we need to make sure those folks can continue to be taken care of. but let's get them a job and get them back to work so families can progress. >> thank you, mrs. mcmahon. mr. murphy. >> again, this is just about numbers. if you except this tax cut number, the only way to account for it is to have massive cut to these programs that do put people to work and grow jobs and take care people when they are out of work. you have to look at the work i have done. i've committed my life to standing up to the most vulnerable among us. some of the work i do on these issues may be don't get the big headlines. i wrote a piece of legislation, the support of housing investment act, named after a great advocate for anti-homeless here in connecticut that would triple the amount of housing units built for the most vulnerable among us. people have very grave mental illnesses and physical handicaps that can live on their own if the
romney is no longer for that tax cut that he has been talking about for a year and a half, the $5 trillion tax cut. it's evaporated. i do not know where it went. he said that tax cut he is calling for will be fully paid for by doing away with exemptions for the very wealthy people. the one exemption, the one loophole he has made clear that you cannot get rid of is the one that allows him to pay 14%. when asked what other loopholes he would cut, and you heard it last night, they could not name one, not one. that is why, folks, the bipartisan group called the tax policy center made up of former bush and clinton economic experts, that is why they said that the romney-ryan tax plan would in fact raise taxes on middle-class families with a child an average of $2,000 a year. $2,000 a year. by the way, every model looked at, from the american enterprise institute, says the same thing. folks, it is time to lift the burden of the middle class, not double down on the great recession that hit them. [applause] as a consequence of the great recession, family, middle class families lost $16 tri
in the campaign. whether you believe government is an enabling or a hindrance. it seems people talk about cutting spending and then when it comes to their actual programs, they don't want it cut. governor romney recently suggested if we went off the fiscal cliff and have the spending cuts in defense, that it would kill jobs in virginia. >> but that's where you need leadership from the top. and successful governors do two things well. they provide leadership and they propose bold initiatives to their legislatures and they also have a strategy or a blueprint for economic growth in their state for the future. those are the successful governors. we need the same type of leadership in the white house. >> no president has had reorganization authority since ronald reagan lost in the 1980's, when it expired. i think there needs to come back. i would put back some type of entitlement authority that was lost after the nixon era. the subcommittees in congress are not very good managers of certain things. so there has to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and structure of the government we have in p
'm talking about mitt romney. i will take my answer of the year. >> i think we want someone who can create jobs and not someone who's going to take -- make bets on failed solar companies. we want someone who is going to create jobs and i think mitt romney has shown he has the ability to create jobs. many of their retailers you currently buy, whether it is a staple for other companies, he created. i think he has a record of creating jobs and a record of reviving institutions that were failing such as the salt lake city olympics. we have a great opportunity here and we need to create jobs to grow this economy. >> the only thing i would take issue with is that he says obama has not been successful. what earl -- what is success? is it making a lot of money or is it helping out this country? the problem with that romney's record as he has gone in, taken over companies, laid-off workers, increased his bottom line, but hurt the communities he is in. this is the choice of voters have in the house races. are going to send people to congress and will help these big corporations improve their bottom
a $500 billion tax-cut for 120,000 families. and the other thing that we learned is that governor romney no longer is for that tax cut that he has been talking about for the year and half, the $5 trillion tax cut. it is amazing. it evaporated. i do know where it went. he said the tax-cut he is calling for will be fully paid for. it would be fully paid for by doing away with exemptions for the very wealthy people. the one exemption, the one loophole that people usually call them, it is made clear that you cannot get rid of is the one that allows him to pay at 14%. seriously. and when asked what other loopholes will you cut -- and you heard it asked last night of congressman ryan -- he could not name one, not one. that is why, folks, the bipartisan group called the tax policy center made up of former bush and former clinton economic experts, that is why they said that the romney-ryan tax plan would in fact raise taxes on middle-class families with a child an average of $2,000 a year. $2,000 a year. and by the way, every model looked at it from the so-called -- the american enterprise insti

mourned the loss of these brave americans. talking about blaming, first, they blame a youtube video and a nonexistent riot, then when the country is getting upset about it, they blame romney and ryan. they keep changing their story. this is not what leadership looks like. we need clarity, not confusion. we need accountability and no more excuses. this tragedy would be troubling in and of itself, but unfortunately, what we are witnessing when we turn on our tv is on a daily basis is the unraveling of the obama form policy. when you say, it is ok to impose these devastating cuts on our military, or, that we don't need any more lima-built m1 tanks, we are projecting weakness. our enemies are more brazen. the our allies are less willing to trust us. so while hot spots are growing abroad, the economy is not growing here at home. that is the problem we have to focus on here. you see, the economy is growing slower than it grew last year. last year it grew slower than the year before. all president obama has offered as more of the same. we have a very big choice to make. that choice is clea

, it was pretty much tied. it was, mow, i talked about that still wind when you or in the 20-yard line. we prn the still wind. they were tight. maybe up one. after august 11th when governor romney decided to double down on the republican plan to fund tax cuts for millionaires and big oil companies, the generics began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up one, two and the. then when todd akin in late august expressed those horrific thoughts and not what he said that bothered me but what he thought about some legitimacy to forms of rape, it widen even more then disclosures of the republican romping in the sea, the generics spread even more. independent voters were reminded how extreme the people are and that these people have priorities that would, in pack, end their medicare, in order to fun the tax cuts for millionaires. the more republican priorities are articulated the better we do. so in august, the nbc "wall street journal" generic had us up one. this week, we are up four in the generics. if they keep spreading if they get fife or six or more then we win back the
talked about commonality but i have been around mitt romney. he is a great -- he is a man of great faith and a strong family values. given the opportunity, i know he will lead this country with honesty and integrity. you might disagree with his policies, i disagree with the president. but i try not to question his motives or his goals. i would hope that the voters get turned off by negativity. i hope that both sides can return some civility to this process and maybe not be quite as divided. i hope we are able to move forward as a country. >> northeastern ohio, the state legislature, thank you for being with us. >> president obama returns to ohio as he speaks at a campaign rally in columbus. starting at 5:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. on tomorrow morning's washington journal, foreign policy magazine examine mitt romney's foreign policy speech. the l.a. times and tribune newspapers come oup with a solution. they rate the current state of the u.s. housing market. the washington journal, like every morning starting at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> and this government has maintained the closest surveill
'm sure the romney people will be happy to hear he's going to vote for him. >> when we talk about the number of ads, we have not mentioned campaign spending and the influence of superpacs this year. so as we close out here, is the story yet written on how much influence they actually have been having on voters to this point? >> you know, i think the superpac phenomenal is one that we're going to be looking at -- phenomenon is one that we're going to be looking at closely to see how it affected things and how it contributed to unprecedented amounts of money. we have never had so much money spent on a campaign as we've seen this year. there may be a point of diminishing returns, maybe there's a point where ads just don't have the impact that they might because people have seen so many of them. but the fact that there have been so many ads, that they've been so sfwens in the swing states, and that they've been so negative. it's really just a tiny fraction of the tv ads that have been aired that make a positive message about either candidate. we're going to -- obviously this is going
that we learned is governor romney is no longer for that tax cut that he has been talking about for a year and a half, the $5 trillion tax cut. it's evaporated. i do not know where it went pick he said that tax cut he is calling for will be fully paid for by doing away with exemptions for the very wealthy people. the one exemption, the one loophole he has made clear that you cannot get rid of is the one that allows him to pay for %.4 when asked what other loopholes he would cut, and you heard it last night, they could not name one, not one. that is why, folks, the bipartisan group called the tax policy center made up a former -- made up of former bush and clinton economic experts, that is why they said that the romney-ryan tax plan would in fact raise taxes on middle-class families with a child an average of $2,000 a year. $2,000 a year. by the way, every model looked at, from the american enterprise, say the same thing. folks, it is time to lift the burden of the middle class, not double down on the great recession that hit them. as a consequence of the great family, middle-class families
of obama's initiatives? no. if i were to cast my vote tomorrow, my absentee ballot would be for romney. >> thank you very much. dr. ruiz, you have a minute, and you can talk about either things you would support or things that you would not support. >> this is a very important question, and i really want the people who have been viewing this debate tonight to really see that she has clearly demonstrated why congress is broken. imagine working in a committee with this type of language and language of gridlocks and attacks. now, i do not believe that we should eliminate the bush tax cuts for those that make over $250,000 a year. we should eliminate those only for those making $1 million or more. i also don't agree with president obama increasing the premiums for our veterans and their tricare insurance. you see, this is something that's very important. congresswoman bono mack has gone washington. she speaks her party line like no other. and i am not running for the democratic party, i am not running for nancy pelosi or president obama, i'm running for you right here in this district as a

, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking about. this is a president who has done everything h
